Lessons From a Postage Stamp

Anyone who knows me knows I love a good short quip or phrase. I ran across this one this evening. Who knows, I may never look at a postage stamp in the same way again.

“Consider the postage stamp: its usefulness consists in the ability to stick to one thing till it gets there”
-Josh Billings

When I think about this concept I can’t help but think it would be great if this phrase could be used to describe a Christian. How does this sound, “Consider the Christian, He has the ability to stick to one faith till he gets there (to Heaven). Isn’t this really the teaching of the straight path and the need to stick to it found in God’s Word.

Or Maybe the quote would go something more like this, “Consider the Christian, his ability and usefulness is to stick to the ‘One things'” until he gets there (to Heaven). They are listed below.

May the Lord continue to bless you as you stick to His one and only path.
